4.33/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

appearance - opaque brown, 2 finger offwhite head, medium retention, good lacing

smell - citrus hop notes dominate the senses

taste - hops up front with a nice complexity ranging from citrus and grapefruit to tones of pineapple backed by a subtle but sufficient malt base

mouthfeel - medium body, well carbonated, sticky mouthfeel

overall - really nice hop profile here, one of 10Barrel's best bottle offerings to date, nice work!!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into my Stone pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Thick three finger head, long retention. Clingy lacing, reasonably thick head. Gorgeous nut-brown color with semi-clarity.

S- Brandy, brown sugar, earthy hops and toasty malts. Warm and inviting smelling beer with an alcoholic kick. Holiday-smelling.

T- Toasty malts and sweet twinge at the end before ending up in the hoppy bitterness. Earthy and delicious with some nice warming alcohol.

M- Acrid feel, not smooth, but not repelling.

O- Quite nice beer. I'd like it again.

22oz bomber to Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Clear caramel color bordering on dark brown...off-white/eggshell colored head has good retention, there is some creamy lacing left behind.

S: Hoppy nose...nice...citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple...Citra really shines here...caramel and toasted malts are buried.

T: Tropical fruit and astringent bitterness, balanced well by a moderate brown-ale malt bill...more Simcoe here, with plenty of citrus hop notes and sweeter fruits to complement the light puckering from the bitterness.

MF: Moderate bitterness...body on the lighter side of medium...some lingering bitter dryness on the finish, though certainly not 'West Coast' dry.

O: Really pleasant offering...too hoppy to be a brown, much closer to an IPA I believe...whatever the case, I like the concept of an 'Oregon Brown Ale'.

22oz : tulip pint

Pours a wonderful dark, amber brown with a foamy very light brown head.

Big hoppy citric notes, but is helped balance out by some pleasant malty notes.

Medium-full body with medium carbonation.

A really well done beer. Very hoppy, but still balanced with easy drinking.

Redish brown with a mocha head that akmost fully dissipated, but enough coverage to lace the glass. Nice piney hop smell with a hint of molasses. Very carbinated beer with a balance of malt and hops. Pretty nice offering, but more hops than I expected with a brown- must be the Oregon.

22oz bottle from N.Salem Fred Meyers. $3.79 Says 7.1% alc on bottle and "Crafted by Tonya Cornett" Slightly hazy bright brown ale with a sumptuous creme coloured head..large and frothy. Pretty hoppy aroma for a Brown..spicy,citric hop big caramel malt backing. Flavour is very nice smooth yet hoppy..the smooth toffee/caramel maltiness over lays a prickly,citric hop layer and surprisingly it works very well. Good on the palate for a 7.1% this is ridiculously drinkable..gulpable even..due to the excellent carbonation levels. Great beer from Tonya and 10Barrel.

4.13/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: (4.0)

- Medium cloudy dirty molasses brown. Minimal head which settles to a rather spotty and bubbly floating mass not paying attention to either portion of the glass. Nice bubbly ring sits quietly.

Smell: (3.5)

- Lot's of grain. Bready and biscuit grain with a touch of sweet caramel, molasses, and brown sugar. A tart ale yeast represents itself as well as an influx of herbal and grassy hops. Nothing too floral or citrus-like which I like. Pretty much smells ale-like, and beery.

Taste: (4.5)

- Lovely balance. Grassy earthy herbal hops play a huge roll in bittering this beer. The balance is astounding against the grainy, wheaty, and bready malt. The malt isn't so caramel at all. This is a tasty and balanced number. Super high marks in flavor. The bitterness is very separated from the flavor.

Mouth Feel: (4.0)

- Lovely medium body, very well drinkable, and perfectly carbonated with what seems to be a pretty standard ale yeast. It is a dry brown, and leaves the tongue a tad dry. It's a touch cloying, and is a chewy number without the heavy caramel sweetness like so many other browns.

Overall: (4.0)

- This beer is damn good. It's is a little more dry and bitter compared to what most of us know as a brown ale. It is a bit stronger, with no notice in its drinkability, and finishes perfectly. High marks from this guy!

Thanks to tony (ahalloin) for bringing this beer to share.

The beer has a almost crimson tinged brown color, lighter than most browns for sure. Some head and some suds left on the glass.

The smell is super hoppy, the citra hops dominate with the super citrus and grapefruit aromas like zombie dust in many ways to me, not much malts and perhaps a little toasty note. I love it, but in the style it seems completely unlike a brown ale.

Again,mi would guess very hoppy pale ale if I was blind tasting, though it has a flutter of dark malt or black ipa like malt bill standing up to the cascade hops in abundance. A nice refreshing beer that is very pleasantly hoppy but not bitter, a little thin and easy drinking.

Overall, a nice beer, I love the hops but would never ever guess this was a brown ale. Hard to rate because of this...
